A few bits of new information were revealed at DC’s New 52 Panel at NYCC/
DC has confirmed Justice League of America as a February debut. That’s the previously announced Geoff Johns/David Finch Justice League spin-off. Executive Editor Bob Harras is referring to them as “the world’s most dangerous superheroes.”
Thus far, when a title is cancelled another one replaces it. GI Combat ends in December, so either it’s the New 51 in January or there’s a new title yet to be announced.
John Cunningham ducked a question about whether there would be a fourth wave in January, so expect the same question to come up with Dan DiDio and Jim Lee have a panel.
All-Star Western is taking a detour into science fiction with Jonah taking a trip to the year 2050 to team up with Adam Strange. I’d say that sounded odd, but there was a brief Jonah Hex title in the ’80s called Hex where he was transported to the future to be more of a Mad Max-ish bounty hunter.
Keith Giffen will be joining Paul Levitz for an arc of Legion of Superheroes that will feature the Fatal Five.
Ray Fawkes will be joining Jeff Lemire as co-writer of Justice League Dark. Fawkes was co-writer for the Vertigo series Mnemovore back in 2005 and has been doing work for Oni more recently.
Alas, nobody thought to ask if the Blue Beetle’s inclusion in Giffen’s new Threshold title has any bearing on the Beetle’s low-selling solo title.
Todd Allen wears a lot of hats. At various times he’s been (alphabetically), a bouncer, college professor, humor columnist, Internet producer and an NBA/WNBA Beat Writer, among other things. He’s the author of Economics of Digital Comics. You should probably read it.
